Routes in Spanky's Love Shack

Spanky Direct V3-4 6A+

Description

A long steeply overhanging wall. Its south-facing aspect means it stays pretty warm in the winter, and it is sheltered enough that it can be comfortably climbed even on windy days at Pena Blanca. The sheer length of the wall make it a great place for a large group to hang out, although there are not too many developed problems. Archeological evidence also makes it a nice spot to chill, although the grinding holes can be found all over Pena Blanca.

The most obvious thing to climb here is the long traverse. Go as far as you want. Variations of this add difficulty, and a few lines tackle the steeps.
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details

Getting There

Located a few hundred yards east of the volcano. It is easily visible from the popular Rave Cave. Trail is faint at best, but the low desert flora make for easy walking.
